We were born out of a love of plants. All the materials used - from the lovely and vibrant roots, leaves, flowers, minerals, and oils, to the glass containers and biodegradable plant packaging - these are designed to evoke the natural botanical beauty in nature.
GEEKS // NERDS // SCI-FI FANS // BOTANIST
It is no joke that we are huge geeks and nerds. As a trained plant pathologist and field botanist you have a lot of time to contemplate the awesomeness of the plant kingdom. There is also a lot of downtime in the winter to write reports, order seeds, do statistics OR you could watch your favourite TV shows and movies ... (Firefly, TNG, Doctor Who). Eventually I realized that I needed to infuse my two passions (the plant nerd, and the sic-fi fantasy geek) to provide others with exceptional quality botanicals, and organic teas - but with a twist.
Our products are organic. They are good for you. And they have some wickedly nerdy packaging. Only in Skyrim will you find unregulated amounts of monkshood, and hopefully what I have achieved is a certain amount of awesomeness that you will come to appreciate and enjoy.
Well, I work full time managing over 15 urban agriculture plots across my local metropolis where alongside volunteers we donate the produce to food banks. We are our own local superheros where we fight poverty through gardening. I've worked as an outdoor ed teacher, community garden coordinator and field botanist. In all I come home each and everyday with compost-encrusted hands and mud on my face from teaching others to love gardening. My husband and I are also beekeepers and drive a 1972 VW Beetle, we have three cats, Gandalf the Grey, Thorin Oakenshield and Nigel. Did I mention the ringtone on my phone is the Harry Potter theme?
MAKE IT SO!
So, whether you live in a grand metropolis or prefer to explore bold new worlds through travelling you can be assured that you will find your geeky inspiration in our wild botanicals!
